"You have nothing in this world more precious than your children. When you grow old, when your hair turns white and your body grows weary, when you are prone to sit in a rocker and meditate on the things of your life, nothing will be so important as the question of how your children have turned out. It will not be the money you have made. It will not be the cars you have owned. It will not be the large house in which you live. The searing question that will cross your mind again and again will be, How well have my children done?"

~President Gordon B. Hinckley

BoM Challenge

Seth and I have challenged ourselves to read the WHOLE Book of Mormon in 30 days this month!! YIKES!! I'm already behind!! I think I can do it though...I KNOW I will do it! Seth has it a bit easier than I do...he is going to LISTEN to it while driving to work. I just have to find the time to read 11 chapters a day, and then it'll get done!! Wish me luck.
I really think it will be a huge blessing to start the new year off with. I'm sure I will have a greater understanding and will grow spiritually. I am excited for the blessings that will come from being so diligent and I hope that I can maintain the same level of scripture study after the challenge is complete.
I am thinking of starting another blog that I can write my journal entries as the month progresses. If I do, I will have the link on the side, so you can keep up with my thoughts as I do this!!

Good luck with that sister! It's a great idea. I know that you'll be able to catch the reverent spirit of Christmas AND strengthen your testimony in the process. You go girl!

That is a big goal, I know you can do it, just make both little ones take a nap together everyday and gett'r done. I started another blog for my journaling, except I kept it secret. How brave of you to make it open to the public. :)
